I Interrupt This Programme...

Woody Woodpecker is enjoying some hula dancers while cleaning his home inside a tree.

Suddenly, an announcer shoves the dancers out of the way to nervously interrupt the programme for word of an invasion from outer space.

Woody doesn’t like having his TV viewing interrupted for such nonsense. He changes the channel, but the same announcer shows up on a kids show and a wrestling match, shoving everyone on camera aside.

This is from Termites From Mars, a late 1952 Walter Lantz cartoon directed by Don Patterson. Ray Abrams, Paul Smith and La Verne Harding are the credited animators with Dal McKennon as the fear-struck announcer.
